Styling mods/Little hacks

Hello everyone, I've just joined quite evidently. I have recently purchased an a5 black edition. It's a 14 plate (64) and I believe it's a b8 ? I was wondering what kind of interior and exterior little touches people are adding and to spark some idea of my own. I've found covers for the door striker that I quite like, I'll attach a picture, anything like that, post It I wanna see it ! Sorry to go on 😅 and thanks for reading.

Interestingly I'm working on launching a brand/store of sorts that will sell products along this type. Along with other custom gadgets, wiring looms etc. Mostly focused on the B8/B8.5 platform, targeted at UK/RHD cars. Maybe I'll have some things you might like

That does sound interesting. If you need a Guinea pig to test any new gear out bare me in mind. 😁

2-3 weeks, with only about 4 products on launch. It's just a small side project I'm working at, don't get too excited! Though I should get in touch with the admin to get sorted as a proper vendor. Products will be stocked in UK, free delivery on everything, 2-5 ish day delivery.

Edit: Probably 4-5 weeks, still sorting stock, though might launch store earlier with preorders.

Stainless/carbon fibre keyhole surrounds, dynamic mirror indicators for b8/8.5, RHD aluminium pedal sets including footrests.
If it goes reasonably well the product line will broaden, there's also other products I'm ordering samples of first, as well as some of the other much bigger ticket items that I'm still doing R&D on (fully dynamic tail/headlights, and semidynamic tail light modules as the currently available ones have pretty meh build quality and high price.)

May also expand into performance parts, such as premade silicon/alu intake hoses etc.

The idea is to sell mostly bolt-on, install at home products. If there is something you are after, I can also look into it. Everything that will be sold will be tested and checked for fitting on a real car, and full returns process if it doesn't fit when I said it would!

Possibly, though you might not qualify for free shipping at that point

Site in the works, branding ready, stock arriving some point in the next 3 weeks. Site will be ready probably next weekend, but I'd rather wait until I have something in stock before launch. Also at that point I'll be sorting the commercial account for the forum, think I'll go for the custom section option, so you'll have somewhere to feedback about the products, and I'll post RnD stuff on upcoming stuff.

Just please be aware the variety of products available at launch will be limited. This is a side project that I'm funding entirely with my own money so the amount I have to put upfront for a larger catalog just isn't there. As said before, if things sell well I'll be working on expanding that catalog pretty quick.

As for the folks outside the UK asking about products, I'd have to help you on a case by case basis, my catalog is aimed at RHD vehicles, and shipping isn't something I've sorted out for abroad. A quick guesstimate I got for NZ was something around 20-30NZD for shipping. UK shipping will be free.

Also had a thought to put together a section where people can list their used VAG parts, though that won't be there on launch.

As this is mostly as passion project, prices should be reasonable and most, if not all, profits will go back into expanding catalog and creating new products.

Haha I’m happy to pay for shipping as there’s almost nothing for us A5 owners in this corner of the globe.
